Previously.. natemeyer.ca was hosted by Hostgator, on a shared server. I have no idea what software was being used, how many resources I was getting, who else was on my shared plan, etc, etc. A lot of unknowns. This type of hosting can get fairly slow depending on how much the website is serving.
I decided to give a unmanaged, VPS a try. I went with http://www.linode.com. I have my own CPU core, with a fixed amount of memory, and a nice quick SSD drive. I installed Ubuntu 14.04, then used the control panel virtualmin, which installs all my servers and services.
I hope natemeyer.ca will load a little faster for people coming for Ontarioparks reviews!
